Bank Negara Malaysia

Established on 26 January 1959 under the Central Bank of Malaya Act 1958 (CBA 1958). The CBA 1958 has been superceded by the Central Bank of Malaysia Act 2009 which became effective on 25 November 2009. It is a statutory body wholly owned by the Government of Malaysia. Bank Negara Malaysia serves as the banker and financial advisor to the government.

The Nautilus Icon

One of the most striking features in Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery is the Nautilus Staircase that begins from the lobby and links every floor. This structure is the inspiration for the main graphic icon. The icon is actively applied and prevalent across all of Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery’s communications material. As a graphic element, the spiral symbolically reflects the desire for knowledge that never stops. The fluid movement in the design speaks volumes for inquisitive and inquiring minds. In short, the ‘spiral’ generates ‘curiosity’.
